Over-Population? Sustainability? Climate Change?


Goodness gracious, seems it’s been a while! I guess when you finally decide to do one thing, a million other things decide to occur at the same time.  Of course, being a procrastinator, this does serve a purpose.  Just one more thing to say I’m going to get to.  In the past couple of weeks…

Imagine


Imagine – John Lennon Imagine there’s no Heaven It’s easy if you try No hell below us Above us only sky Imagine all the people Living for today Imagine there’s no countries It isn’t hard to do Nothing to kill or die for And no religion too Imagine all the people Living life in peace…

Obama, Peace President, As If!!


I’ve been reading my Twitter and Facebook newsfeeds and increasingly see police action against Occupy Wall Street demonstrators. Not only in New York, but all over the US. Tonight there’s talk of police raids in San Francisco and Oakland.  Is the US not a democracy and every citizen guaranteed the right to assemble peacefully?  Aren’t we afforded the right to speak…

Cutting the umbilical cord between Politicians and Corporations


We seem to be going round and round in circles with the Tea Party’s disgust for government and the Occupy Wall Street’s disgust for corporations. We cannot deny that we would be in a much better place if there weren’t corporations lobbying our politicians to draft legislation that benefitted these companies. There is a simple…

The Bin-Laden Dilemma


I believe that Osama Bin Laden has been dead for a number of years, and was not indeed killed on May 2nd, 2011, as our government would have you believe. I have absolutely no proof to support my claims so no one has to agree with me – it’s just my own convoluted mind jumping…

Totally random – why hijabs and niqabs rock!


Since there’s been debate recently about niqabs, I’ll address it first. Niqabs, I believe, contrary to popular thought, are quite liberating!  A woman who chooses to wear a niqab is a woman who is unafraid, a non-conformist, independent-minded, and true to herself.  I think I would be too conscious of having all eyes on me…

Libya – No Fly Zone


Ever since the passing of the resolution yesterday by the UN Security Council for military intervention and adoption of a “no-fly zone” in Libya, I have inundated myself with scores of opinions on the subject.  Many of my friends seem to be of the belief that this will turn into another Iraq or Afghanistan, is…

It takes a village to raise a child


So apart from all that, a friend of mine decide to attack the PM of my homeland and laid squarely at her feet the demise of society and the state of youths in that country these days.  His statement “Malcolm called JFK’s death “chickens coming home to roost”..I heard the hypocrite cry on the news…

What a day!


Today was quite a day. Here’s a brief re-cap. Got into a few disagreements with folks on FB.  Will get into that in a few. Ahh, my shining moments. Gaddafi made a rambling, ranting, raving speech that still has many people confused. Threatens to execute Libyans for their uprising. Meanwhile, he’s losing territory, the Libyans…

Morocco’s big day


All through the Middle East we’re seeing a strange phenomena. People are rising up and demanding more from their countries’ and their governments. These aren’t people who live in wealth, but are your average middle class and poor. What has this world become that these governments who have ruled for decades should turn on their…
